Re: “Pole Fight: Fortuna Art Installation Draws Councilmember's Ire

"This is a personal insult to me," he said. "It says the same thing as a mosque being built by the Muslims." Um, your xenophobia is showing, Mr. Glaser.

Re: “State, Fair Association, County in Standoff Over Sunshine Laws

'If we don't have anything to hide, why wouldn't we do this? And if we do have something to hide,.... I'd sure like to know what it is.' Mr. Titus clearly doesn't know how things run in this Country...oops, I mean COUNTY.

Re: “Eureka Council Rejects Humboldt Made's Proposal, Moves Forward with Virginia Marketing Firm

This frustrates me no end. I understand the decision had to be made because it appears process wasn't followed by what looks to be the natural choice to promote Humboldt, a HUMBOLDT group. Instead, we'll be relying on someone in Virginia to entice visitors to an area that few outsiders 'get'. Unless Eddy Alexander is a Humboldt ex-pat, I have no faith in our area getting the cheerleader we deserve.

Re: “Naming the Sharky Looking Thing on the Beach

Is it okay that that think makes me shudder as much as would a great white. I'm really sorry...they're probably amazing creatures but them and alligators....*shudder*

Re: “Squireses' Properties? Going, Going, Gone?

I'm no fan of the Squires' and their brand of landlordery but....this sounds more than a little sketchy? The guy is given and fails at the job of bringing things up to code then is allowed to buy and manage them? This sounds like the dictionary definition of "conflict of interest". Am I missing something? With those qualifications, next thing you know he'll be working in the White House.

Re: “Shot Up and Shut Down

So, presuming from your bright red cover with the flat-tracking motorcycle, I presumed I would be horrified by the damage done by motorcycles to the river bar. Imagine my surprise to find the culprits involved with the destruction of the environment were yay-hoos with guns in four-bys and a$$holes in sedans dumping trash. Do your writers and graphic "artists" not talk to make sure the cover actually has a teensy bit to do with the actual story? Or, like a lot of commenters who seldom wade through the collection of words that comprise a story, does the person designing the cover just PRESUME to know what it's about? Geez. Otherwise, good story, Linda.

Re: “Growing a Greener Bud

I never could figure out why growers don't buy in bulk but I was happy to see photos of one bust where Fox Farm bags were laying about; yay for shopping local? Just a suggestion but, perhaps the horticulture shops might have drop-off bins at their shops where customers could drop bags for use by those who need them for trash and such. I use cloth grocery bags so find myself scrounging for bags to use for trash. I use soil bags when I have them. I use my cat food bags and anything else I can find. Some of us don't use quite so much soil in our daily lives would be happy to use someone else's bags and keep them from the landfill.
